My ear feels very clogged but I cannot remove the wax. It feels watery inside and smells weird. What's going on in there?

In brief: Earwax is ok

The body makes ear wax naturally in order to protect it from cuts and infection.
Sometimes it can be inpacted by the use of q-tips or a finger it may need to be professionally removed. In the meantime you may try some over the counter war rinse and you may be able to soften it enough to rinse it out.
